How to be a school council member?
School council is made up of representatives from years 1 – 6. Each class will elect one representative who attends meetings and gives feedback.
Each class will also elect a vice representative who will attend meetings and feedback in the main representative’s absence.
Having been a member of pupil council for one year, you will not to represent your class for the following two years to allow opportunity to a wider range of people.
Elections will be run without prejudice or discrimination. Any class member is entitled to run for school council and the decision in each class will be made by a secret ballot.
If you wish to be considered for school council, you will need to present a speech to your class giving clear reasons and examples of why you are the most suitable candidate for the job.
